Acrylic glass shields with aerosol protective edge recommended by scientists

Best possible droplet/aerosol protection for schools, universities, offices, medical practices and businesses

Aerosol protective edge
Only protective screens with an aerosol protective edge swirl the aerosol particle stream and thus prevent aerosols from overcoming the partition.

Transparent protective screen with scientifically confirmed aerosol protective edge

Contagious viral diseases such as COVID-19 or influenza are transmitted via different infection routes. While in times of a pandemic mobile TAC V+ high-performance air purifiers provide a high level of protection against airborne infections caused by virus-laden aerosols, the unique acrylic glass shields with an aerosol protective edge reduce the direct risk of infection from larger droplets and smaller aerosol particles. Whenever people talk, learn or work together in a confined space and a minimum distance of 1.50 m cannot be maintained. For instance in the classroom, in the office, in a medical practice or in a retail store.

Two-sided protection against flying droplets and suspended aerosols

Unlike conventional “sneeze guards”, which only protect against larger droplets emitted when speaking, sneezing or coughing, the transparent acrylic glass panels with aerosol protective edge prevent tiny aerosols from overcoming the protective screen, even in case of close contact. Thus, the acrylic glass panels with aerosol protective edge offer protection against a droplet infection by the person sitting next to you or a person sitting or standing opposite. Furthermore, the all-round protective edge prevents an uncontrolled spread of the aerosol particles in other directions. Particles potentially carrying viruses remain behind the screen and mix with the air before being removed by a room air cleaner.

The acrylic glass panels with aerosol protective edge are suitable for the use:

  • in schools – between pupils sitting next to each other and on the teacher’s desk
  • in universities – between the students’ seats in the lecture hall or in seminar rooms
  • in offices – between people working together or for workplaces opposite each other
  • in workshops or production halls – between mechanics or production workers lined up at a workbench
  • at sales counters, cash desks and at goods collection points in shops or pharmacies
  • at customer counters at banks, insurance companies or public authorities
  • between receptionist and customers at the reception or in a medical practice
  • at the hotel reception at guest check-in as well as in spa and wellness areas

In combination with the high-performance air purifier TAC V+ or other suitable room air cleaners, a unique all-round protection can thus be realized for all persons in a room who interact with each other sitting or standing next to or opposite each other. Without the need to wear a mask or maintain larger distances. (However, the measures prescribed in the local hygiene concept apply with priority.)

Functional principle protective screen with an all-round aerosol protective edge

More protection with all-round aerosol protective edge

Whether in a classroom, open-plan office, administration, medical practice or retail store – aerosols are mostly emitted to the front and, when wearing face masks, to the sides, but they also always rise upwards due to convection and thus easily overcome even high walls after a while.

Functional principle: Trotec protective screen WITH an all-round aerosol protective edge

The surrounding edge of the Trotec protective screen causes the aerosol particles ejected towards the screen when speaking, coughing or sneezing to be deflected at the acrylic glass shield and to flow radially outwards to the edge, where they are deflected again. The deflection at the edge creates a vortex that traps the aerosol particles in this area. Thermal lift is also reliably stopped by the protective edge. People sitting in the vicinity are much better protected from invisible aerosol particles.

Less protection without all-round aerosol protective edge

Transparent protective screens are nothing new. These dividers were already in use in food sales before the pandemic. However, they only served as so-called “sneeze guards” and not as an effective protection against aerosols.

Functional principle: Commercially available protective screen WITHOUT an all-round aerosol protective edge

In the case of acrylic glass panels without a surrounding edge, the aerosol particles can flow unhindered radially over the edges of the protective screen and even spread over a large area behind the acrylic glass panel. This way, aerosol particle clouds can also reach the breathing area of neighbouring or more distant people.

Conclusion: Only protective screens with an aerosol protective edge swirl the aerosol particle stream and thus prevent aerosols from overcoming the partition.

Functional principle of the acrylic glass shield with an all-round aerosol protective edge

The all-round aerosol protective edge of the acrylic glass shield from Trotec ensures that the aerosol particle stream swirls around the edge. As a result, the aerosol particles remain in the area of the infected person for a longer time and mix with the air before they are diluted and separated by the room air cleaner. When aerosol particles hit a protective screen that is NOT equipped with a protective edge, the particles will flow unhindered over the edge of the screen. This allows the potentially infectious aerosol particles to spread to the next row of tables.

Effectiveness of the aerosol protective edge scientifically proven

Commissioned by Trotec, the optimum combination of air cleaner and protective screens with an all-round aerosol protective edge has been intensively researched by Prof. Dr. Kähler at the Institute of Fluid Mechanics and Aerodynamics of the University of the Federal Armed Forces in Munich. In several studies, the renowned scientist has put forward specific recommendations on how to implement a high level of infection protection in schools and offices, for example.

To the study: “School education during the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic – Which concept is reliable, feasible and environmentally sound?”

To the study: “Can mobile room air cleaners effectively reduce the risk of an indirect SARS-CoV-2 infection caused by aerosols?”

Protect yourself, your employees and customers from the very first contact with a stable countertop with all-round aerosol protective edge. The protective screen of high-quality acrylic glass exclusively made by Trotec ensures a high level of protection against larger droplets and small aerosols in personal customer contact.

The countertops available in three sizes are suitable for:

  • Hotels (check-in, check-out, concierge service, spa, wellness)
  • Medical practices (patient reception and appointment scheduling)
  • Banks and insurance companies (customer counters, consulting rooms)
  • Authorities (citizen information, advice centres, approvals)
  • Law firms and notaries' offices (client reception)
  • Sales/service (advice, cash desk, goods issue)

Such reception, consultation or counter areas are often the first point of contact for clients, patients and people who need information. This is where they are greeted, advised or served – and where the risk of infection by droplets and airborne aerosol particles is correspondingly high for the staff.

Crystal-clearly superior to conventional hygienic barriers

The Trotec protective screen with all-round aerosol protective edge swirls the aerosol particles and concentrates them in the area of the person emitting them. In comparison, with a protective screen without an edge, the aerosol particles spread unhindered and also reach the other side of the partition.

Extra safety for reception areas:
Countertop with an all-round aerosol protective edge

Especially for reception or consultation counters with an increased risk of infection, the visually attractive countertop with an all-round aerosol protective edge is a sensible alternative to the usually metre-high edgeless hygiene walls. With the protective screen with aerosol protective edge, both the staff behind the counter and the people in front of it are better protected against a direct infection than with conventional sneeze guards.

Uncomplicated installation, safe stand, high protection

While commercially available hygienic barriers reach almost to the ceiling to offer a certain protection against rising aerosols, the countertop with surrounding edge convinces with compact dimensions and quick readiness for use.

The countertops are available in the following sizes:

  • SMALL (H: 750 x W: 595 mm)
  • MEDIUM (H: 750 x W: 795 mm)
  • LARGE (H: 750 x W: 995 mm)

The 26 cm wide and 12.5 cm high hatch enables an easy exchange of goods, money or documents – while at the same time a high level of protection against larger droplets and smaller aerosol particles is ensured

The acrylic glass shield with an all-round aerosol protective edge, specially developed for use in schools, is manufactured exclusively by Trotec. The crystal-clear protective screen reliably shields pupils sitting next to each other and improves protection against a direct infection by flying droplets – without obstructing the clear view of the teacher or blackboard. With the protective screen, the people sitting next to each other are better protected from direct infection through speaking, coughing or sneezing than with face masks, surgical masks or cloth masks. 

Quality acrylic glass panels made in Germany

The aerosol protective edge that surrounds the panel made of high-quality RÖHM acrylic glass (registered as “Community (EU) design no. 008182745”.) limits the air flow and thus prevents the aerosol clouds emitted by the people from flowing unhindered into the room towards neighbouring rows of seats or drifting over to the classmate around the protective screen.

The protective effect of the innovative aerosol protective edge has been scientifically tested and confirmed. Depending on the width of the desk, the protective screen extends beyond the edge of the desk and is an effective barrier not only on the desk but also between pupils or people sitting comfortably. The protective screen is attached quickly and easily with a metal screw clamp and an adhesive strip. Both fastening elements are already included in the scope of delivery. The metal clamp can be flexibly adjusted to any tabletop thickness and, together with the adhesive strip, ensures a secure hold. The rounded corners provide extra safety and prevent children and young people from injuring themselves on sharp edges.

The appropriate size for every table

The protective screens are available in two sizes: SMALL is the right choice for primary school desks, MEDIUM is suitable for offices and desks in secondary schools.
